Title: update and provider problems


This terminal performs most of its functions well, but has a few software bugs and connectivity issues.

Firstly the software bugs, the terminal freezes up frequently attempting to remotely update which never works. Even on the cradle with ethernet connection updating is frequently buggy with freezes and reboots. Secondly the provider for the wireless data service is AT&T which has the worst service area of any of the major providers. Greatly limiting the areas where the terminal will function. One last gripe, there is no sleep or power save mode. So if you want to use the machine all day without charging you are forced to shut the terminal down completely between transactions.
Then endure a long start-up (2mins) before the next transaction.
